Unlikely, as it did work when I removed the second battery and put it

It sounds as if there are more details to what you have tried thus far. So I believe you are saying that you have two batteries, and that when you are using battery #2 (and it's charged?) put the machine to sleep, remove the battery, wait a few seconds to simulate changing batteries and then put battery #2 back in the machine successfully wakes from sleep? But when you try the same scenario with battery #1 it fails?

ps. you meant 1984-01-01 not 1904-01-01 right?

No, it was 1904.

What kind of problem can cause this? I do not know of a setting which can represent 1904 in the hardware parameter ram on a G4 Ti book. I failed to even be able to set the hardware clock on a G4 Ti book to the year 1904. Let alone have that value be saved for the next boot.
